Parkside Neighborhood at Daffin Park in Savannah Georgia

DaffinParkThe Parkside neighborhood, literally named because the community borders Daffin Park along Washington Avenue, one of the most beautiful and desirable streets in Savannah with majestic oak trees draped with Spanish moss. The Parkside area runs west to east from Waters Avenue to Bee Road and from Washington Avenue to around 52nd St from north to south.
 You’ll find a variety of early to mid 20th century homes including Arts and Crafts style bungalows and 1950s brick. Home prices currently range from about the low to high 100s depending on the size, modern upgrades and of course the proximity to the park.

Savannah is fortunate to have some really great parks.  In the downtown Victorian District Forsyth Park is the place to be but if you live in Ardsley ParkBaldwin ParkGordonstonor the Parkside neighborhoods then you’ll probably be spending a lot more time in Daffin Park.

Parkside

Daffin Park is always full of activity but is so large that it rarely seems crowded at about 80 acres. There’s soccer fields, football, baseball, volleyball, a well equipped children’s playground, basketball courts, swimming, fishing, miles of sidewalks for running, a beautiful stocked pond with a lovely gazebo in the center and a fountain. The gazebo can be rented out for parties and most weekends you’ll see families and friends having a cookout or tailgating.
 A really great place to walk dogs, pets are very welcome, on leash of course, however, there are plans to have a true, fenced in, off lease dog park completed in Daffin Park by the end of October, 2011! The center of the park features a grass promenade that runs the length of the park amid huge oaks with limbs stretching out and forming a shaded moss canopy. At the east in of the park is Grayson Stadium, home to our local baseball team, The Savannah Sand Gnats.
If you enjoy spending time outdoors in Savannah’s great weather, taking advantage of what Daffin Park has to offer then you’ll want to check out this great park side community.
For more information just send me an email of give me a call.

Baldwin Park in Savannah Georgia

Posted in Baldwin Park, Savannah, Savannah neighborhoods with tags , , , , on November 27, 2008 by savannahgeorgiahomes

baldwin_parkArdsley Park’s neighbor to the north of Victory Drive, Baldwin Park is one of my favorite neighborhoods. From Victory Drive to 40th St  to the north and bounded to the east and west by Price Street and Waters Avenue, the Baldwin Park community has seen a lot of recent revitalization. From large homes to charming Arts & Crafts style bungalows amid mature trees and landscaping.

Many Baldwin Park homes have already undergone restoration and more still to be done, making this neighborhood a wonderful opportunity for investment. Baldwin Park has a strong community feeling and Baldwin Park residents seem determined to bring it back to it’s original splendor.

Just about a 5 minute drive to Savannah’s Historic District and Forsyth Park,  and near Savannah’s Daffin Park, a short drive to the eastside Savannah shopping centers make Baldwin Park  a neighborhood well worth considering.
